Obamacare repeal lacks votes to pass in Senate

CBS News

Senate Republicans have been delivered another blow after failing to secure a simple majority of 51 votes on the 2015 “clean repeal” of the Affordable Care Act with a two-year implementation delay.

Moderate Republicans had voiced opposition to the strategy and were given an early indication of its failure with Republican Senators Heller, Capito, Collins and McCain voting no.  

Senators voted Tuesday in favor on a motion to proceed with debate on the Senate’s health care plan to effectively repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. On Tuesday night, the Senate Republican plan to repeal and replace the health care law failed on a procedural vote.

  1. of course it does.

    they created a new tax revenue scheme levied on those trying to live free and vote themselves raises every year.

    only a mush minded fool would have thought it was going to be reversed.

    never seen a temporary tax in my life.
